The internship topic is linked to the project "Introducing eGovernment through Digital Health" comprising a $7.5 million grant to the Government of Tonga to roll-out a digital health solution to all hospitals and health facilities in Tonga.
The intern will look at the original economic analysis done prior to project approval, adjustments to the project made following the request for proposals and engagement of vendor to deliver a digital health solution and seek to assess the actual economic benefits delivered.
The economic benefits should be broadly defined, and social benefits should be specifically considered with gender related analysis. The task will involve assessing the methodology used, looking at best practice methodology (within and outSide ADB), and recommending improvements to ADB's approach to better estimate benefits from digital health. Lessons should be drawn as to how this project may be used as a pilot for other countries.
